roi in a rectified stereo-camera for visual odometry

Hello,

I am using two point grey gige cameras as a stereo-system for viso2_ros. Now i am wondering if anyone has made experiences regarding the stereo_calibration with the pkg camera_calibration. The user has the possibility to "scale" the output via a slider, 0 means that all pixels in the recified image are valid, 1 means that all raw image pixels are shown in the rectified image which results in black/invalid pixels in the rectified image.

Now I chose 0 which gives me a nice image without black pixels in the format 1384 x 372. Now in postprocessing I wrote a script which took out a centered ROI image out of the rectified image. Processing these smaller images gives me a big speed advantage as the algorithm needs more time for larger images. The quality remains approx. the same.

So my question is, do you use mode 0 or 1 for calibrating your stereo_camera. i ímagine mode 0 will lead to a scaling of the image which might be not that great.

Also I am wondering if I can edit my calibration.yaml file in order to publish the ROI I would like to have, e.g. 1344 x 372.
